Here are the three processors released:

  • Ryzen Threadripper 1950X: 16-Core, 32-Thread, 3.4/4.0 GHz, $999
  • Ryzen Threadripper 1920X: 12-Core, 24-Thread, 3.5/4.0 GHz, $799
  • Ryzen Threadripper 1900X: 8-Core, 16-Thread, 3.8/4.0 GHz, $549 (on shelves August 31)

These prices are substantially cheaper than the equivalent Intel silicon.

Crunching the numbers here, these prices mean that the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X will cost $700 less than the equivalent Intel Core i9-7960X chip, and a whopping thousand dollars less than 18-core/36-thread Core i9-7980XE.

At the more modest end of the spectrum (if you can call it that) the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X costs $400 less than Intel's Core i9-7920X, and $600 less than the Core i9-7940X.

All chips will be shipped unlocked for ease of overclocking, will use AMD's new Socket TR4, and will feature quad channel DDR4 and 64 lanes of PCI Express.
